DOG SEES GOD: CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE BLOCKHEAD

By Bert V. Royal

Directed By: Liisa Yonker

   

Shadowbox Theatre

   

Ten years after we last left Charles M. Schulz’s characters, we find Charlie Brown and the rest of the gang all grown up and struggling with many of the social problems and issues that confront teens today.  Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion and sexual identity collide and careen toward an ending that's both haunting and hopeful.
